Winners of international competitions, including the Concert Artists Guild International Competition 2007 and Finland’s Kuhmo International Chamber Music Competition, the Carducci Quartet has appeared at prestigious venues across the globe including the Wigmore Hall, London, National Concert Hall, Dublin, Tivoli Concert Hall, Copenhagen, Carnegie Hall, New York and the Library of Congress and John F Kennedy Center, Washington D.C. Repertoire of the Anglo-Irish ensemble includes complete cycles of Shostakovich’s fifteen string quartets in Europe, South America and the United States and a Beethoven series celebrating twenty years of the Carducci. Celebrated for their interpretation of contemporary repertoire, the Carducci Quartet has given premières of numerous works composed for them by British composers including Huw Watkins, Michael Berkeley, John McCabe and Adrian Williams, an oboe quintet by German composer Sven-Ingo Koch and Monks Music by Russian composer Alexander Raskatov, based on Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ. In addition to their busy concert schedule, the Carducci run two festivals: one in Highnam in the west of England, and another in Castagnetto-Carducci, Italy, the town from which, with the blessing of the mayor, they took their name.
